On most models, the top of the case is slightly curved. Inside the case are the works of the lighter. The insert contains the spring-toggle lever that keeps the top closed, the wick, windscreen chimney , flintwheel, and flint , all of which are mounted on an open-bottom metal box that is slightly smaller than the bottom of the outer case, and into which it slips snugly. The hollow part of the interior box encloses five rayon balls similar to cotton balls which are in contact with the wick.
The fuel, light petroleum distillate or synthetic isoparaffinic hydrocarbon commonly referred to as lighter fluid or naphtha , is poured into the rayon balls sometimes called the "cotton," or the "batting" , which absorbs it. It also contains a tube that holds a short, cylindrical flint. The tube has an interior spring and exterior cap-screw that keeps the flint in constant contact with the exterior flint-wheel.

In the popular television series Supernatural the protagonist brothers Sam and Dean often have to set fire to long-dead human remains, in order to end the existence of the ghost or other spirit formed from the soul of the previous inhabitant of the body. As a Zippo lighter is one of the few lighters that will remain burning without holding down a button or lever, it is common for a slow motion image of an open Zippo lighter, in flames, tumbling into an opened grave or crypt, to be used as cinematographic symbol of the brothers' usually successful terminaton of a supernatural threat's existence.
